ISA House of Delegates Meeting – POSTPONED

Due to the current restrictions on gatherings mandated by the state of Illinois, the House of Delegates meeting that was scheduled for April 25, 2020 at the ISA offices in Chicago has been postponed until further guidance is received. 

As a reminder, any Active Status member interested in advancing the Society’s mission to educate, advocate and represent anesthesiologists practicing in Illinois is invited to register to attend. The online 2019 HOD registration form doubles as a delegate “self-nomination” – just register and you’re in! Delegates will elect officers, discuss issues they bring affecting our specialty, and formulate an action plan for the Board. Your District and/or Area are based on your practice location (see map). Registered participants will also receive an invitation to the President’s Dinner, usually held a day or two prior to the meeting.

Information regarding new plans for the House of Delegates meeting will be posted as soon as possible. In the meantime, thank you for all you are doing to keep yourself, your family and your patients safe!

Inspire. Influence. Achieve.
